What makes SafetyCulture a great alternative?

Customers can get more bang for their buck with SafetyCulture because it’s both more cost-effective and more feature-rich.

GoCanvas is more costly to use than SafetyCulture for Premium features such as Analytics and Custom Integrations.

Additionally, GoCanvas does not provide task management or incident reporting capabilities, so you can’t delegate follow-up tasks to outside individuals or empower them to report issues.

SafetyCulture, on the other hand, is a complete operations platform, allowing organizations to easily manage tasks and quickly resolve reported issues.

Easy onboarding, with optional assisted onboarding

GoCanvas has a complicated onboarding process, which can be a major source of frustration for new customers.

SafetyCulture, on the other hand, offers a simple and straightforward onboarding process with optional assisted Customer Success Manager onboarding.

This ensures that customers can quickly and easily get up and running with the software, and have a dedicated point of contact to help them with any questions or issues they may have.

World-class technical support, 
when you need it

When it comes to technical support, SafetyCulture stands out as a clear leader when compared to GoCanvas.

SafetyCulture, on the other hand, offers a reliable and responsive support team that is dedicated to helping customers quickly and efficiently resolve any issues they may encounter.

Both SafetyCulture and GoCanvas are digital solutions that provide customizable forms and checklists for workplace safety and compliance, along with a variety of features to enhance safety and compliance processes, such as mobile forms, data analysis and reporting, and integrations with other software.
